Venn Ottery, Ottery St Mary


Guide price

Equestrian and holiday letting property in rural East Devon, 10.5 acres. 9 Timber Stables. Sand School. Holiday letting potential. Safari tents & Shepherds hut available. Mains water and electric.


Otterdene is set in a peaceful and quiet rural location in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a landscape providing excellent riding and walking country. The property is roughly equidistant between Ottery St Mary and Sidmouth, both towns providing shops and recreational facilities. Sidmouth, one of the South West's premier residential resorts, is famous for its wide beach and esplanade as well as catering for everyday requirements, including a Waitrose supermarket.

Exeter, accessed via either the A30 or the A3052 coast road, offers more comprehensive facilities with train connections on both the Paddington and Waterloo lines as well as an international airport and access on to the M5 motorway at junctions 29 and 30.


This unique property has evolved and expanded over the past 8 years allowing the potential for a new owner to have a successful equestrian and/or holiday letting business in this glorious area of East Devon.

Set in 10 acres, the land is split into various convenient sized enclosures with a mix of post and rail, electric fencing and established tree lined hedges.

Within the stable yard, there are 9 timber loose boxes, 2 tack rooms, large rug store, and covered wash down area, hay store, one timber store and a log cabin style office. There is plenty of parking adjacent to the stable yard as well as a 49m x 29m composite surfaced floodlit arena.

Behind the stable yard a separate parking area provides parking for the Safari tents and Shepherds Hut. Given consent in December 2012 (Ref 12/2209/FUL) for 4 Safari tents/yurts' the vendors have established a small successful business with 3 sites used, there is space and permission for one more.

The two safari tents are 2 bedroom' with a timber deck and fire retardant canvass, whilst the timber Shepherds hut has space for one double bed. Tucked away behind each one is an LPG fired shower and a chemical toilet. See below.


For an additional £20,000 the Safari Tents, Shephards Hut and all the fixtures and fittings within them would be included, alongside the goodwill of the glamping business.


Please note there is an existing restriction on the development of permanent structures, unless for stabling, except by written agreement with the neighbouring property. The neighbour has a right of way down the drive past the stables.


Mains electric. Mains water to be connected by the current owners.


Follow the A3052 from Exeter towards Sidmouth. At the Halfway Inn turn left towards West Hill and take the next right to Venn Ottery. As you drop down the hill turn left at the green triangle and the drive is on your left.
